    Don't read these, I told myself. They'll be amazing, I warned me, and then you'll be mad. You're too busy anyway, I said, decisively; you have 40 papers to grade, and—

    *falls headlong into brilliant pastiches of straight-up pure unadulterated 100% uncut china white Arthurian romance*

    A wordless sound broke straight out of Jaime’s lungs as the Hound snarled and just bulled his way into her guard and grabbed her by the throat and threw her bodily down; he was—he was on her, slamming a mailed fist into her face and grabbing her head with both hands as if he was going to just—rip it off, and Jaime howled, “No!” uselessly, and then she screamed and smashed the Hound in the head with a rock she’d grabbed off the ground, smashed him with it a second time, beating him back enough to open up some room, and then she brought out her second sword, the shorter blade, and cut the entire top of his face off from the upper jaw to the eyeballs and into the skull.

    Bookmarker's Notes

    Rodney and John are not the sort of friends who talk.

    They're the sort of friends who watch movies together, and play games, and periodically rescue each other from mortal peril, though that last one is more of a side effect of their job and their shitty luck than any kind of personal inclination.

    But in light of today - in light of the mess of overlapping scars on the insides of John's forearms, faded into white but still raised, a couple looking deep enough that part of Rodney is surprised John is still here - Rodney finds himself walking to John's quarters an hour or so after dinner armed with four bottles of relatively decent beer and a sense of grim determination.

    John looks surprised to see Rodney when his door opens, but he steps back to let him in when Rodney holds up the beer.

    "I do have regular appointments with Dr. Heightmeyer, you know," John says, though his tone is light and he's smiling. He takes a seat on his bed, and Rodney takes a seat beside him, for lack of any other options.

    "So do I," Rodney says, easily. "Though I suspect for very different reasons."

    This should have ten thousand kudos for its downright creepy ventriloquism, including but not limited to a pitch-perfect Camilla Macaulay and Richard Papen:

    "Say you have an alcoholic brother who is violently in love with you. Your options for protection are a waify gay boy in a cravat, a pretty Californian with such low emotional affect no one ever knows what he’s thinking or feeling, or a six-foot-five sociopath who has never had the attention of a girl in his life.”

    "You think I’m pretty?”

    Bookmarker's Notes

    John was still a little dazed because his shiny new wings weren't shiny or new and he knew that O'Neill had to have given his old insignia to Carter on her promotion. John fingered the wings after the President pinned them in place. Caldwell was watching; John raised his eyebrows and Caldwell nodded – the insignia had come from him. It meant more to John than just a tradition upheld; Caldwell stood for the Air Force in a way neither O'Neill or the President could. Handing over his old wings was an endorsement of John as an officer outside of the political machinations that made the promotion happen.

    ***

    (The one where John really, really fucks it up with Keller and Mitchell.)
